>100 F (>38 C) = Shirt

84-99 F (29-37 C) = Light Coat / Vest; more sparse

55-83 F (13-28 C) = Coat / Vest

40-54 F (5-12 C) = Light Jacket

15-39 F (–9-4 C) = Winter Jacket

–3-14 F (–19-–10 C) = Proper Winter Jacket

<–4 F (<–20 C) = Proper Winter Jacket; Reinforced with Thermals

70-80F-light shirt and jeans.
50-60F-hoodie and jeans.
30-40F-two hoodies and jeans.
10-20F-thick coat, hat/beanie, and jeans.
Anything below 10F, I wouldnt recommend going out but if you go, layer on the 10-20F one. I hope I could help!

So how exactly do you dress (how many layers and what type of clothes) for...


30F (-1C)


20F (-7C)


10F (-12C)


0F (-18C)


-20F (-29C)


-40F (also -40C!)
Is that a trick question? I put on clothes that keep me warm. In layers. Appropriate shoes, gloves, head cover and a scarf too. From my experiences with 0F to -20F that's the best method to keep one warm.
Natural fibers like cotton, wool, cashmere are best insulators. Down parka is warmer than filled with polyester. Leather shoes instead man made, wool socks/gloves instead of synthetic.
Down/woll duvet is warmer than polyester comforter...
Common sense

Not sure why Floridian and Minnesotian would dress differently. I think that cold sensitivity/intolerance is more personal than regional. Probably mostly related to age, health, gender, race and genetic predispositions. A person from Florida could adapt to cold much faster than someone from Minnesota.

I love extreme cold but I live in Texas. Go figure...

Layering is the most effective approach.
